Kim Ah Sam belongs to the Kuku Yalanji and Kalkadoon people and works between printmaking, sculpture and weaving to culturally connect to country, interlocking her journey and exploring cultural identity.
My sculptures relate to the landscape in the way that it relates to the body. It’s as if the surface of the land has a type of skin, and the lands has rivers just like the arteries and veins of the body. My sculptural weaving flow in the same way as the rivers interlace country, or the veins run through the body allowing movement.
